the biggest impact in the u.s.? >> one of the most powerful campaigns was the trayvon martin case. a 17-year-old african-american, killed in florida, tragically. two weeks after the incident, there was no media coverage of all. a private injustice. the parents start a petition, and then it goes viral. the importance is not just the individual acts of arresting his killer in prosecuting him, but the public. the result, the awareness of the tragic situation of young african-americans not being treated fairly in the justice system or the "stand your ground" laws, where you can almost impunitively shoot someone. that is some of the really exciting things we see. >> in trayvon martin's case, clearly there was an impact, but they were not waiting. they were in there pretty soon, on the case. what i want to ask you -- do you find a difference in the way that companies -- you have a lot of petitions aimed at companies that do specific things. obviously, some have had more political implications. is there a difference in response between business institutions and political institutions? >> politician

brazile. there were over 31 million tweets last night. the most tweeted about event in u.s. political history. perhaps no surprise there. but almost 328,000 tweets a minute when president obama was projected to win the election. it beat those tweets by 20 million. that was the first presidential debate by obama and governor romney. and take a look at a tweet that could go down as the most retweeted in history. it was barack obama's simple accounting of history last night. four more years, with a period. that equals 16 characters. by my math, he had 124 characters left. what a picture those three words, telling so much of the story. george? >> josh, thanks very much. >>> let's go to abc's jon karl about the house and the senate. republicans are going to stay in control of the house. one of the surprises last night, democrats, firmly in control of the senate. >> reporter: basically, the bottom line here, you have a congress that's more deeply divided than the one we just had. but the senate, this is a story of missed republican misses and losses. in massachusetts, the most closely-watch

old, i just became a u.s. citizen this year and must say i was so proud to have the privilege to vote. i started crying as i was walking away from the polls. just whoever whelmed with emotions. #voteordie. and speaking of the youth vote, despite the fact that unemployment for those between 18 and 29 was up 12% in the month of october, by 61% of young voters still favor president obama. there was some concern about an enthusiasm gap because in 2008, 78% of young people said they were very enthusiastic about the president but only 48% said so this time around. so it will be very interesting to see if they actually turned out. >> actually go and vote. >> right. >> that is the big question. they turned out at about the same rate as those four years ago. josh elliott. you have people gathering around. >> the anticipation is starting to build, people milling about and seeing on the giant screen surrounding us here in times square turning it into a virtual amphitheater. the votes coming in. as we project states, the excitement starting to build and i want to bring in first-time voters. we ar

being would republicans regain control of the u.s. senate? that's what this has been about from the beginning. this was probably their best opportunity to do this. with 23 democratic targets, now the big question, will democrats actually gain seats? right now democrats are up two seats. now there are two seats we are watching -- two races we're watching, north dakota and montana where republicans could pick up seats, but it's looking like democrats have a chance of either breaking even or actually gaining a senate seat. >> when you talk about the gains where are you putting angus king, the independent from maine. >> i am putting angus king, self-described independent firmly in the democratic camp. he will almost certainly caucus with democrats in the senate. that's why democrats kind of below the surface did everything they could to help him win. >> jon karl, when you take a look at the big picture of the house, which we know -- when you go to the sfwhat what are we learning about the tea party tonight? the tea party fervor caused such a cataclysmic difference in 2010. >> well,

. the white house is leaning towards u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice to replace clinton at foggy bottom. rice's confirmation is far from assured giving the questions surrounding her handling of the attacks in benghazi. defense secretary leon panetta made it clear he is ready for retirement. senator john kerry, eyeing the secretary of state position may be asked to replace panetta. adding to the stakes of musical chairs, general allen's confirmation hearing to lead nato has been put on hold. during the campaign president obama called for nation building at home in his second term. he'll need to start by rebuilding his own team. john heilemann, you were a guest on the very first program of this show, there is a lot happening inside the president's inner leadership circle. how much of a problem do you think this is for him? >> first of all, let's not -- let's terry for a moment on -- i have been doing some math, 8,760, that's the number for today, 8,760 hours. >> wow. >> since alex wagner took over that chair and ever since -- >> subjected america to this program. >> and ev
